GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and fellow Republicans are about to put the myths to rest. The Republican Speaker of the House has announced there are plans to release ALL the footage from the January 6th riot.
“I want to be very thoughtful about it, but yes,” Mr. McCarthy said at his weekly presser.
“I think the public should see what happened on that day. I watched what [then-House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi did, where she politicized it. For the first time in the history as a speaker, not allowing the minority to appoint to a committee,” he told reporters. “We watched the politicization of this. I think the American public should actually see what happened instead of a report that’s written on a political basis.”
Rep. Paul Gosar, said that the release of the video will actually help some 1/6 defendants who are still facing charges.
“The defendants aren’t given the proper background to defend themselves; it has to happen. Absolutely. It has to happen,” he said. “Let’s set it free, and while we’re doing that, let’s get the tape with Ms. Pelosi in conversation with the Gen. [Mark A. Milley] and the Capitol Police.”
Nancy Pelosi manipulated J6 to persecute President Trump and MAGA America.

There’s no real secret. All the House has to do is release all of the data, and it will blow apart everything Pelosi did last year.
So far the House has been off to a great start.
They gave Democrats a taste of their own medicine by kicking radicals like Adam Schiff off their committees. We also previously reported the House of Representatives took its first step in what promises to be a long battle against the IRS. On Monday, the GOP-controlled House passed a bill to rescind the bulk of an IRS funding boost that had been signed into law last year.
The bill, known as the “Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act,” was introduced by Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Neb.) and passed in a 221-210 vote. It directs any “unobligated balances of amounts appropriated or otherwise made available” to the IRS from the Inflation Reduction Act to be rescinded.
The legislation would eliminate about $71 billion of the total $80 billion that was allocated for the IRS but would reduce tax revenue by about $186 billion, translating to a $114 billion increase in deficits over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Republicans have argued that the funding boost would mean audit rates “rise for all taxpayers,” which they argue is unnecessary and wasteful. They have also criticized the legislation for not allocating a larger portion to taxpayer services.
